Another wild week in the SEC brings continued wonderment to the conference.
The cap to the regular season was dotted many times in the SEC during the last week. Having ten teams qualified for post season keeps balance to the nation’s premier conference for another season.
Witnessed on Saturday in Atlanta was realizing why Cameron Newton is the best player in all of college football regardless of issues surrounding his father. Will it cost him a trophy pose is the question to be answered next week?
The Southeastern Conference will send a fifth straight member and seventh all time to the BCS Title Game when #1 Auburn meets #2 Oregon on January 8th in Glendale, AZ. The SEC has never lost a BCS Championship game to date.
After waiting seven long days to find out if bowl reps would honor their pledging found another year of trade-offs exist once again. LSU at 10-2, slipped behind 9-3 Alabama to the Cotton Bowl. The Crimson Tide will get the heftier Capital One payout.
Les Miles earned his 4th ten win season in his six years at the helm of the Bayou Tigers that give him 61 total wins at LSU and is second best in the SEC during the time period.
Somehow a 7-5 Florida team was promoted over nine win South Carolina and an eight win Mississippi State to the SEC’s fourth highest bowl after the BCS Sugar. It has AD’s up in arms wanting answers on how the occurrence has happened two years in a row with the Outback.
Urban Meyer going against the conference grain does not sit well inside the confines of the SEC, after Commissioner Mike Slive’s unity speech last season. The Gators coach voted up Oregon over Auburn in the final coaches’ ballot.
Meyer, who recently had another contract rework, will now earn $24 mil over the next 6 years. Details released on Friday doubled his annual salary of $2 million. Gator nation can rest assured Meyer will be around for a long time.
Mississippi State’s Dan Mullen disgraced fellow coach Steve Spurrier and South Carolina by voting them out of the final regular season Top 25 altogether. What’s up with that Dan?
The nine win Gamecocks last earned the same amount of wins in 2001, now have the chance to win ten games that has not been done since 1984 – the most wins in school history.
Tennessee and North Carolina listed each other on their bowl ballots as the teams they would prefer to meet in a post season game. The Music City Bowl made sure that it happened for both fan bases.
The Vols had opted out of next year’s game with a $750K buyout when it was deemed the rebuild job was too rigorous with the eight game conference schedule noted Derek Dooley in August.
Kentucky has extended its longest bowl streak in school history to five consecutive games. The ‘Cats are 3-1 over the last four bowl games noted AD Mitch Barnhart late Sunday evening. Kentucky meets Pitt in the inaugural Compass Bowl.
It is also marks the first time Kentucky has went to a bowl game with a new head coach added Barnhart.
